Requesting Public Records

The City of Hudson, in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code, defines records as including the following: Any document - paper, electronic (including, but not limited to, email), or other format - that is created or received by, or comes under the jurisdiction of a public office that documents the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, operations, or other activities of the office. All records of the City are public unless they are specifically exempt from disclosure under the Ohio Revised Code.

A copy of the City's Public Records Policy is available online. It is the policy of the City of Hudson to strictly adhere to the state's Public Records Act. The City of Hudson works diligently to fulfill requests for public records in a timely manner. Public records requests should be made through the Communications Office by completing and submitting the Public Records Request Form. You do not need to identify yourself, but we will need a way of contacting you when the request has been filled.
